learn well

There are many men who give lessons in the world, but few who are glad to take them. There are even fewer that take heed of them. No one over the age of thirty takes to lessons kindly. Therefor such men will become selfish, allowing themselves to be fooled by errors and end their life in vain. You should accept lessons. Being on intimate terms with a person who is well versed in reason.

The other day my husband mentioned the burnt bodies hanging over the Strykers and how he can still smell them, and how he just might not re-enlist this time around.

I hope you have somebody who can help make it better. Or at least take your mind off things for awhile.

don't kid yerself, AST...
like the old man said,
"to sit in a small room
and drink a can of beer
and roll a cigarette
while listening to Brahms
on a small red radio

is to have come back
from a dozen wars
alive"

Yeah sure he doesn't care. That's why he just wrote about it see, because he doesn't care.

We all have been sitting here on our asses and changing the channel the whole time, and we want to make snippy comments at him for taking a break and enjoying the same damned thing? Not.

We need this articulation. We Americans need it bad. Speaking of which, isn't it nice, now, how the entire country of Lebanon is now called "Hezbollah" by the fucking American press? I am choking on the hypocrisy.

The struggle is an every day affair to tune out and save my sanity or tune in and save my soul.

Hey man, glad to hear you're enjoying yourself. YOu fuckin deserve it, man. I'm in Ireland, doing archaeology during the day and spending the night listening to Irish music and guzzling beer and whiskey. I'm in fuckin' heaven. And then I picked up a paper...... big fuckin' mistake. The world is ending, so in the meantime I intend to drink, frolic and forget about it.

Buy the spatulas. Let the world turn without you for a while. You've earned it.

@ guts, who wrote that? It's a fabulous quote.
